Making Halloween Crafts For Preschoolers Using Adhesive Vinyl
Adhesive vinyl is a synthetic, water-resistant material that has an adhesive layer and a backing that can easily be peeled off. Its thin, flexible surface makes it very easy to cut the vinyl sheets into precise and intricate designs. It comes in two types – permanent and removable adhesive vinyl.
Permanent vinyl possesses incredibly strong adhesive properties. It is designed for long-term applications. Removable vinyl, on the other hand, provides a secure bond with the base material while still being easy to take off. It can be peeled off without leaving any glue residue, making it perfect for temporary decorations.
Adhesive vinyl can be applied to several different types of surfaces. It shows the best results on smooth, clean, dry, and non-porous surfaces such as metal, plastic, ceramic, and glass. TeckWrap Craft offers a vast range of adhesive vinyl options in different colors, patterns, and finishes. The vinyl films come in three different roll sizes: 5ft, 10ft, and 82ft – all available at budget-friendly prices.
Adhesive vinyl is easy to apply. Simply cut the design using an automated cutting machine like Cricut or Silhouette, weed out extra vinyl using weeding tools, apply transfer tape, and paste the design on the surface that you have prepared.

Adhesive Vinyl Halloween Project Ideas For Little Ones
Here are some fun projects that you can make with adhesive vinyl for your preschoolers! It's important to ensure the activities are age-appropriate and safe. These should be simple and enjoyable projects. Be sure to supervise the children closely, provide pre-cut vinyl shapes or stickers for them to apply, and use child-safe materials such as the adhesive vinyl available at TeckWrap Craft.
Emphasize creativity, and let the little ones choose their own designs and colors. This is a great way to engage preschoolers in a Halloween-themed craft while also developing their fine motor skills and encouraging their creativity.
Jack O’ Lantern Jars
Transform ordinary jars around the house into spooky decorations using TeckWrap Craft’s adhesive vinyl collection. This type of vinyl is the perfect material for customizing containers such as cups, mugs, jars, and tumblers.
For this project, we recommend taking an old mason jar, painting it with a thin coat of orange paint, and applying Jack-O’-Lantern vinyl decals over the surface. You can make creepy and funny eyes and mouths in different shapes with black adhesive vinyl. Place a candle, tea light, or fairy lights inside so the jar has a nice glow! It’s the perfect spooky decoration!
Your preschoolers can help paint the jar and paste the vinyl eyes and mouth. They can also decide what kind of facial expressions they want on it. You can work with any design you choose – ghosts, bats, witches, and so on. In fact, why not let your preschooler decide this as well? It’s the perfect way to allow them to participate in the crafting process!
At TeckWrap Craft, we have a wide variety of adhesive vinyl films that are excellent for this craft. We recommend using 001G Series Ink Black for the face or bats. If you want to use matte adhesive vinyl, go for 001M Series Ink Black. You can also add shimmery accents with our Burst Shimmer or Holo and Opal adhesive vinyl films. We suggest covering the rim of these mason jars with Silver Holographic Glossy Rainbow craft vinyl.
Another great idea is to use Color Changing adhesive vinyl to decorate these. When you light the candle inside, the glass of the mason jar will get slightly hot and the vinyl will change colors creating a kind of magic that your preschoolers will love.
Spooky Door Signs
If you want to get your preschooler into the Halloween spirit, this project idea is perfect for you! Help your child create spooky signs for their bedroom door or if you are a teacher, you can make your little students decorate the classroom door with you using any product from TeckWrap Craft’s vast and expansive adhesive vinyl collection.
Start by discussing with the preschoolers what kind of Halloween theme they'd like for the door. This could be a classic one with pumpkins, ghosts, and bats, or it could revolve around their favorite Halloween characters like witches or friendly monsters.
Why not create a “Beware!” sign or maybe the image of a ghastly ghoul? You can also make a pumpkin patch with silly faces, white funny ghosts rising from the graveyard, or a green monster’s face with a hilarious expression. The options are endless. You can also simply write ‘Happy Halloween’ with a scary castle and orange moon in the backdrop.
Another wonderful idea is to take a paper sheet the size of your door and make your preschoolers put hand marks all over it with different dark-colored paints. Paste scary adhesive vinyl eyes and mouths on them and cover the door with it. You can even paste googly eyes on these faces and your preschooler will help you.
Keep the adhesive vinyl designs simple so you can cut them with a pair of scissors. Work with the preschooler and remember to keep the decorations child-friendly and age-appropriate. This activity can be a great bonding experience and an opportunity to get your preschooler excited about Halloween.
Our Chameleon adhesive vinyl may be the perfect material for this crafting project. It’s ultra-thin, soft, and stretchable, making it easy to work with. It also has a stunning shimmer effect, adding an extra touch of glam to your designs. You may also need our 001M Series Ink Black vinyl. You can also make use of our Black Mosaic Metallic vinyl for this. For the moon, our Beige Orange Opal adhesive vinyl is simply superb.
Decorate Faux Pumpkin
Decorating a faux pumpkin with vinyl is a wonderful and mess-free Halloween craft project for preschoolers. Cover the work area with a tablecloth or newspaper to catch any scraps or vinyl backing. Let your preschoolers choose the adhesive vinyl designs they'd like to use. Encourage them to pick Halloween-themed shapes, like ghosts, bats, or spiders.
Assist the children in cutting out the vinyl shapes using scissors. Show them how to peel the backing off the vinyl shapes and apply them to the faux pumpkins. They can arrange the vinyl shapes as they like to create their own pumpkin designs. This activity will help improve their fine motor skills as well.
Once they finish decorating, place the faux pumpkins around the room as festive Halloween decorations. You can also encourage them to share their pumpkins with family and friends.
We recommend using metallic vinyl to add an element of shimmer and interest. Black Textured Metallic adhesive vinyl will be great for this. You can also use black Reflective vinyl that shines brilliantly when the light falls on it. Our Colorful Pearl adhesive vinyl will also add charm and intrigue to these Halloween crafts. Plus your preschoolers will love the gleaming design that they helped create.
Spider Bunting With Cardstock And Adhesive Vinyl
This is a very interesting craft. You can cut cardstock in the shape of a triangle and paste the body and legs of spiders and bats using black and red adhesive vinyl on it. You can make the body black and the legs red or play with other colors. Your preschooler can help you paste these.
They can also paste googly eyes in them to make them scarier. Once these are made you can punch a hole in the cardstock and the little one can help put a fish wire through it to make buntings. These can be hung in the bedroom or if in school, all around the classroom. Each student will have his or her own scary spider on the bunting.
These can be made with Glossy, Shimmer and Glitter, Matte, or Holographic vinyl. If you want to add an element of magic, use Glow in the Dark vinyl for this so that when the lights are dim, these become luminescent captivating the preschoolers and making them proud of their work.
Cute Ghost Balloons
This is a happy and easy Halloween craft for preschoolers to work on. These funny ghouls can be made using white balloons and adhesive vinyl. Cut the vinyl into happy and funny ghost faces, just the eyes and mouth, and paste them on inflated balloons with the child.
The choice of craft adhesive vinyl for this project totally depends on how you want to execute it. Whether you want to keep it simple with 001M Matte or 001G Glossy adhesive vinyl or you want to add shimmer and glitter. Glow in the Dark is another great option.
Making Halloween Crafts For Preschoolers Using Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV)
Heat transfer vinyl, also known as HTV or iron-on vinyl, is an exceptionally useful crafting material. It is available in a wide array of colors, patterns, and finishes. It is mainly used on fabric-based materials. However, heat transfer vinyl also adheres effectively to some other surfaces such as leather, canvas, and wood. It is a highly versatile crafting resource.
This vinyl has an adhesive backing that is activated when it is exposed to heat and pressure. When heated, it forms a durable, lasting bond with the chosen base surface. If you purchase a high-quality HTV, you can be sure that your designs will remain vibrant for years on end! At TeckWrap Craft, we offer a vast selection of vinyl products at affordable prices.
Heat transfer vinyl is easy to use. All you have to do is cut the design that you want on your craft preferably using an automated cutting machine or if the design is simple, you can also use a pair of scissors. Place it on the fabric where you want it to be and apply heat and pressure to it for the recommended time. The HTV will form a secure bond with the substrate. For the detailed process, see our blog “How to Use Heat Transfer Vinyl.”
